Before I begin, I want to tell you I just had a big cry. I deleted all my pictures from CHA in error and have lost them all. I had to retake the picture of the items I received and as I am a "make lemonade out of lemons" kinda gal, I am grateful that I downloaded the picture of Tim Holtz and I at CHA so not all is lost. I was so upset that I put down the lens cap to my camera and now can't find it. Oh well, life goes on................ On to the good stuff!
I had such a great time at CHA. All the vendors were so nice. This was my first experience and I was told that the event was usually bigger, however for a newbie, it was big enough for me. I met a lot of wonderful people and can now put faces to some names. I had fun shopping around and playing with products. Provo Craft had such a large area and a ton of awesome make and takes. If I had driven, I would have a lot more items but I had to limit myself due to flying and baggage weight.
Not only do I own Cutters Creek, I also own a few yahoo groups and I just adore all my members. They are so sweet and kind to each other and there are days I just want to hug my computer. And not only that, they are all so talented in some many ways that it just amazes me at times. They thank me often, however it is they who drive my groups to the success they have become and I owe each and every one of them a world of thank yous! So to that end, some of the loot pictured will be gifted to some very lucky and worthy people. Some of the really great things that they will get is one of those gorgeous Memory Making pink craft aprons. The pink slice was darling and as a breast cancer survivor myself, I was in awe that they decided to go with the "Think Pink" theme. Someone will get one of those Sizzix teddy bears. I also have a piece of the entire new line of SEI paper. Someone will get that too! I have totes and all kinds of little things and I want to share some of the items that the vendors were so gracious to share. Thank you to all the vendors for making my CHA experience one to remember for a very long time.
